About the Artist: Stuart Coffield is an entirely self-taught artist. However, he has taken much inspiration from the diverse artwork found on record covers of the 1960s and 1970s. Before launching into his own career as a professional artist and photographer in 1984, he held various jobs, including one with a ceramic design company. He then went on to work for various advertising agencies and multi-national companies, whilst receiving a steady flow of private commissions. Stuart Coffield particularly enjoys painting portraits, motor-racing scenes and aircraft.
